I fell in love with Amaya Condo Show-Unit! This condo till today is not even ready yet. However its the lifestyle and concept that made my decision to hunt for a condo.
In today's lifestyle, we are all looking for a balance (work, social, family, etc). Thus, time is the biggest taboo as everyone is rushing for something. So Condo definitely fits my bill as I can convenient buy groceries in the tuck shop, have my laundry picked up (not that I dont do my own washing..but let say for the big items, the condo has an in-house laundry). The condo has facilities that is made convenient for its residents. Sports Centre (squash (iHeart), swimming (iHeart). Too bad, no small put for golfers. Then hair salon, massage centre, facial, child care, kindy, cafe, etc.
Besides facilities, the other factor is securities. At least it gives you a peace of mind compared to staying in a landed. Not to say that condo is 100% safe, but if I were to to compare to my SJ house, I would rather stay somewhere else. (Will blog about SJ house sometime later)
Of course, the weak side of staying in the condo is parking, getting in and out (not as freely as staying in a house), high maintenance charges, population, etc. However I can overcome those la.
